Different types of goal setting

And you could add, "...for different types of people." One of the areas of my MBTI team sessions is the last dichotomy to compare, the part about how others see us. It especially relates to completing projects and the way we order our work. That means it speaks to our use of time. And that … Continue reading Different types of goal setting

Is it an outcome? Or an occurrence?

Last week the NFL honoured a small group of individuals by being selected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which means they received their 'beige jackets'. Yes, I am a football fan, and this post does apply to you. Two of the players honoured led contentious careers, which were marked by soundbites against their … Continue reading Is it an outcome?

Are you motivated by pain or success?

There is also another side to motivation. You might call it, lighting the fire under your butt. But there are two different ways that can happen. Success My oldest son Corban graduated this week, and man am I proud. I was proud of my daughter as well, but I think there are things we are … Continue reading Are you motivated by pain or success?

Is your goal the same as your co-worker’s?

"Once a foundation of engagement is in place, then you can focus on culture change. If you can't engage your employees, then you can't build a culture, and if you can't do that, then all talk of mission rings hollow." (Nate Dvorak, "When Mission Doesn't Matter", Gallup Blog, April 10/18) I used to preach/yell/chant/scream about … Continue reading Is your goal the same as your co-worker’s?

Helping People with Their Fundraising

I had the privilege of spending a late evening with individuals needing help with their fundraising vision. It is very rewarding to help people see past the nuts and bolts of whatever they see is the process, and take them to a place where they get to create a vision for their goals!

Everyday leaders are growing around you

Do you notice them? I'm blessed to have have worked with youth and young leaders for years. I got to see people grow everyday. When I didn't notice this anymore there was a problem with my vision.

What is your top 5%?

Where do you place your highest priorities in life? And how long is that list? A while back I was called to evaluate this list, considering what my next options were in career and vocation.

New Year’s Resolutions and Your Wishful Thinking

I hate New Year's resolutions. They are the adult equivalent to children sitting on a mall Santa's lap at Christmas. The problem is not so much with the idea of setting realistic goals and establishing what your true hopes are going forward. The issue lies in how you go about it. Most people tend to … Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions and Your Wishful Thinking
